Time has been kind to the landscape outside our Cortland, NY factory. Little has changed since we started making fishing line here way back in 1915. The rolling hills and crystal-clear trout streams are still pretty much as they were when Cortland Line founder Ray Smith defined his mission to produce the world’s finest fishing lines.

These days, it’s still commonplace to see a Cortland employee walk down to the river during his lunch hour for, “just a couple casts.”

We still live to fish. And because we fish we know the difference between success and failure on the water can depend on your line. Like you, we want to fish with the best lines available, so we build every Cortland line as if we were going to use it ourselves, using the finest materials and cutting edge technologies to produce lines that out-perform any other line on the market.

Cortland Line manufactures the finest fly lines, braided lines and monofilament in the world. Lines engineered to meet any fishing challenge, from trout to tarpon, bass to bones, tuna to sailfish, we fish for them ourselves and we put that experience into every Cortland line we build. We’re sure Ray would be proud.
